See Extreme Detail In Shuttle Launch As Never Before

A new technique of photography has been used to see the Space Shuttle launch in unprecedented detail.  The photography technique, called “Fusion Imaging” uses 6 different cameras all mounted on the same bracket and taken simultaneously.  Computer software selects the best pixel out of the six images and makes a composite photo after analyzing every pixel.  The result is the image that we would see if we could handle the extreme brightness caused by a Space Shuttle launch. This technique could have dramatic repercussions in the research of new rocket motors, atmospheric re-entry vehicles, and other high temperature research thus allowing researchers to see what they otherwise would not have been able to.  Full credit for this technique and images must be given to Louise Walker and J.T. Heineck.  Now if we could just get some in color…  (click on images to enlarge for better detail)
